Open now at Galería Cubana and running through Monday, June 7th is “Creer (To Believe),” a show of mixed media paintings by Yasser G. Rittoles and Isolina Limonta. Taking the self-portrait and using a minimal palette with flashes of hot color, Rittoles’s stark imagery addresses issues of racial distress and spiritual malaise.
Though known for her collagraph prints, Limonta moved away from the presses during Covid. She started painting religious icons using Chinese ink. These pared-down, monochromatic works are all about the emotional burden of the pandemic. Dense, abstract washes are overlaid with a filigree of fine detail. The gallery is located at 357 Commercial St. in Provincetown.
